Rewarding Subtlety: Creating True Softness in Your Horse

There is a way to create softness in your horse without amplifying your aids, adding excessive pressure, and getting loud. To do so, we must quiet our minds and open our eyes to find the smallest, most subtle responses from our horses and reward them immediately. In this presentation, Jess will work with a participant’s horse to demonstrate how to read a horse’s body language and expressions in the most “simple” groundwork exercises to reward subtlety. By doing so, instead of creating over-reactivity, fear or edginess, we can create true softness in our horses.

This presentation will only be open to 1 participant. Jess will work with the horse first and then will teach the owner how to do the same exercise.
